  • SNG Studio Shows-life at my studio in Ventura

    I have for a long time been producing weekly shows shot professionally at my studio showing the weeks work. I thought that maybe you guys might find it interesting because as I build my own subs and costumers that are often part of all the things Mary and I do at our studio.

    I have been at this location now for 7 years this July. We love this place it's is a makers paradise for us. Lately it has been crazy busy filling mask orders, rocket kits and customer builds. We sometimes get help but with the virus present we sent everyone home two months ago now. But we prevail. These work to do!

    Enjoy. This is the latest video but once on Vimeo you'll find all the shows and even showcase dating back 10 years ago when I built from scratch a 66 inch long TOS Enterprise.

      Steve,


      Beautiful work on Nautilus, and nice work on the video (as per usual).

      In regard to your linkages on the Nautilus, I simply rotate the motor compartment bulkhead 180 degrees so that the servo outputs are on the bottom rather than the top. This gets them lined up with the linkages in the lower hull, allowing you to put them in the bottom of the hull versus the top (and frees up more room for foam installation).

      Your solution definitely works, but that's how I do it, just FYI.

        Thanks Bob I wondered. All works in the end but it would have been nice to have the control arm on the bottom.

            Steve,

            That is going to be a great boat build! I love the style and shape! I also REALLY enjoy all your videos! I like how you work on so many interesting projects!

            I am going to start following you on as many videos, and YouTubes as I can. I really enjoy your work!

                Steve! I have a question for you?

                I see you are using a DC Power Supply unit to test out the LED lights on your Nautilus! I am thinking about getting one, can you tell me are you using a 30V 5A or a 30V 10A unit for your testing?

                Thanks Steve!

                  Rob this is a newer version but they work great for our needs. No need to spend a fortune on anything over priced and fancy. https://www.amazon.com/Power-Adjusta...NsaWNrPXRydWU=

                    Steve!

                    Thank you very much for taking the time to answer my question, and giving me a good lead on a power supply! I was looking at that very one, but I was not sure if I needed to go to a 10A or if the 5A would serve my purpose!

                    Thanks again!

                    Rob
